Valley of the Rocks, Lynmouth

#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Exmoor National Park
Must see · Historic Walking Area · Tourist Spot
Feral goats and evidence of the last Ice Age, draw thousands of tourists annually to Valley of the Rocks. Startling rock formations line the 0.8 km (0.5 mi) basin that runs parallel to the coast in north Devon. The coast path is generally level thanks to a formally surfaced path that leads the way. If you prefer an even easier walk, several parking lots allow you to choose a spot close to your preferred destination. Ancient fossils line the valley. It's okay to pick them up during your walk but return them to their original spots to preserve the area. Public picnic areas and a cafe provide quiet spots to snack.

  • Going back to the Valley of the rocks was on my bucket list as I visited the area over 50 years ago when I was a child. It was just as I remembered. The goats were there early morning still sitting.....  more »
  • Great place for a walk. Amazing views. Rocky terrain so make sure you wear suitable footwear. Love my tea shop near car park so can enjoy a cuppa and cream tea.
  • We weren't sure what to expect, but this place was awesome! The sun was setting over the sea, throwing golden light onto the rocks - sublime! And there were wild goats on the hill, just to add to the mystery of the place. Well worth the journey.
